    Truck and plow look great. I hope you have good luck with them. I will be waiting for the updates as we go through the winter. It should be a fantastic set up.

    You'll love the LCF to plow with and the new Meyers V's work very well.

    Awsome plow truck and the Meyer V looks awsome on it. I was looking at them at Angelos last week and they look solid, and strong. It's definately in the running for my next plow buying decision.

    I might add a deflector to it. You can add those to V plows, right? Im sure the snow will want to windshield on you if you dont. I guess it depends on what kind of places you plow too.

    Are you planning a spreader unit? Angelos was shipping those under tailgate units out like hotcakes while I was there. I was there having a spreader installed. I had a lot of time to look around. :rolleyes:

    Nice looking rig, i don't like meyer but i can appreciate the plowing that truck and plow will be able to do!!

    They really need to change their headlight mounting design...they look like insect antenas or something!

    SNOWPOWER-yes you can do a deflector on a V plow, just in two pieces, either leave a notch in the middle (so when the plow is straight or in V there will be a gap, closed gap when in scoop mode) or use a lighter piece of rubber for the middle section so that it can flex and bend in V mode since it will be compressed!

    I agree very sharp looking. My buddy has the same truck with the dump. He has the Western V Plow and uses a 8' Western Ice Breaker.

    That looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
    My new Chevy w4500 goes in next week for its plow mounting. I will get the pics up as soon as I get it back.

    Plus. You are the one with the check book. They aren't the ones who are going to use it. So who give a crap about what they say or think.

    I don't understand why I never see more of these out on the road. I think they are a nice ride. I'm curious to hear about the Meyer Super V.

    Nice truck. Everyone had meyers around here 20 years ago, I still think they are a good blade. Good luck this winter.

    Actually I have had the truck for a year now.....and I searched high and low for a plow that had a mount as oppose to fabricating a custom one......well it was hear at plowsite that another user informed me that Meyers made one....so thats it I bought a Meyers and it just bolts right up:nod:

    Hey guys thanks for all the compliments ....I will give more pics when there is snow....if there is snow:rolleyes: ....

    Snowpower....yeah a deflector will probably be put on the first time I get a face of slushhy crap.......As far as a spreader.....I am thinking about putting a V Box in it.....I can get a stainless locally used at a pretty fare price......I just don't know if I am ready to do that to this truck.

    That looks nice, get a pic of the side with the plow raised. Does it sag in the front at all?
